Set List: Darlene Love Pulls Out All the Stops at Asbury Park Show

Darlene Love performed on Saturday, September 12 at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, NJ at a release party for her new album, Introducing Darlene Love, bringing down the house with a 19 song show that not only showcased the album but also her career as a whole.

Over the course of the night, Love performed with Steven Van Zandt, Paul Shaffer and the Glory to God singers along with a crack backup band. Love took a three song break in the middle of the main set to let producer and E-Street Band member Van Zandt take center stage.

Love performed all fourteen songs from her new album along with five classics from her time with Phil Spector's Philles label, both as a backup singer and as a phantom lead singer.
